Shock Spikes is a Black Magic spell. The spikes do an amount of damage contingent upon the caster's Enhancing Magic skill and the target's resistance to Lightning damage. Generally this spell will not do more than 15 damage per hit at level 75, and starts out much weaker than that. In addition to dealing lightning damage, Shock Spikes have a chance of stunning anyone who physically hits a target with the spell active. The Shock Spikes scroll can be bought from merchants in Selbina, Nashmau, and Windurst Waters.

Ramuh's Blood Pact: Ward Lightning Armor and the Blue Magic spell Plasma Charge also grant the Shock Spikes status.

Red Mages wearing Duelist's Tights will have the effect of their spikes enhanced.

The Ninja Chainmail +1, Rasetsu Samue/Rasetsu Samue +1 will occasionally mimic the effects of Shock Spikes.
